Today’s L.A. Events Preview: Division Day

    Division Day @ Spaceland, 2/12

    Division Day”’s debut full-length, Beartrap Island, is a remarkably humble album. It”’s got no production bells and whistles, no surging post-punk guitars or overly busy high-hat action, no grandiose keyboard washes or mannered vocals that tell you the quartet is aiming for the Staples Center. It”’s just four guys writing smart indie-rock songs that they believe in enough to let them speak for themselves. The band”’s music is cut from the same faded denim cloth as the rest of the L.A. indie bands associated with The Ship collective (Earlimart, Silversun Pickups, Sea Wolf), but Division Day isn”’t afraid of upsetting the pretty textures with a little clattering noise now and again. Best of all, lead singer Rohner Segnitz”’s raspy-yet-always-tuneful voice communicates honesty in a way that isn”’t cloying. Division Day plays Spaceland every Monday in February. (ER)
